2000AD comes to the tabletop with this skirmish game bases on characters created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. Hunt down mutants as a team bounty hunters.
Strontium Dog, originally published in 1978, focuses on Johnny Alpha – a mutant bounty hunter that carries a variety of weapons and gadgets to help in him capture and destroy mutants. A great nuclear war has wiped out 70% of Britain’s population, which has led to a increase in mutants. This includes Alpha, he hunts his own kind.
In the game players run a team of bounty hunters, or the outlaws they hunt. There will be gun battles, chases and showdowns in a universe filled with pirates, fugitives, and corruption. The minis are based off characters from the comic – if you’re looking for a different aesthetic, this has it.
Take a look at the full line – there’s an intro box with everything you need to start playing. If you’re looking for a bigger game and more minis, these expansion sets are available for pre-order.
